Posted:basically most use a mix of lamp oil and white gas. play with the mixtures and see what you like. lamp oil is safer, so use as much as you can of it. white gas burns brighter, hotter, and cleaner but is explosive and that's BAAAD. white gas can be used staight, if your crazy like a fox, and that's about as bright as it gets. it is also sticky so watch the wraps and wear thick clothes! and learn how to avoid explosions first, too!

Posted:i use a 50/50 mixture of citronella lamp oil and kerosine.... so far it has worked really well.... it burns fairly bright and you get a smoky citronellary kind of smell which is alot better than kerosine.....if you want to go really bright than i have no idea but be careful whatever you chosse.......
